Michfab offers a diverse line of sheet metal folding machines from Roper Whitney.
Sheet metal folding is a forming fabrication process. A gauging system with stop fingers positions the blank to the bend line. The upper beam clamps the blank to the lower beam. The folding beam bends the sheet to the programmed angle.
